Another possible option for you is a X163 link. X163 is a transmission link connected through Telstra's exchange. It would be worth while exploring this option as I recall it was approximately $2000 per month for 20 gig data on a 2Mbps/2Mpbs plan when I last investigated it. Most major ISP's will be able to supply this product.

Our contract with the ISP has just expired and I was hoping that I could get some advice and contact details with regards to ISPs. Currently we have a data cap of 20 gig a month. Our current monthly bill includes link rental, router/firewall rental and 20 gig of data. We run off a microwave link and it is costing us in the vicinity of $4000 a month. We have a 2Mbps symmetric upload and download speed. Is this a reasonable amount to pay per month - or are there better deals around?
We would not want to reduce our upload and download speed and our local telephone exchange can only handle 512k.
In terms of the microwave link - I am not sure why the College has not explored other options. What else is available?
Any help would be much appreciated.
